Why Integrated Science Education Outreach?
There is a strong need to develop quality professionals in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Current educational methods, however, continue to be non-inclusive of students of color, young women, and those marginalized by socioeconomic status. The complex and diverse questions of our world quite simply require a diverse cadre of scientists to be answered. Unlocking the potential of ALL members of our community to ask and answer questions will ensure a better world today and in the future.
Science is a simple pursuit: we stand at a window and describe the world we see. When we add scientists who see, perceive, and share that world differently than we do, the description clarifies.
InSciEd Out Mission
To share the culture, language and practice of science excellence with all students in our local, national and global communities by:
- Facilitating partnerships between scientists, educators, industry and other community partners to rebuild science education practices for the 21st century and bring available technology and mentorship to the community.
- Empowering the development of a diverse group of learners who are ready for college and workplace success in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
- Creating a conduit for science literacy that results in improved health outcomes for communities.
